Pink Papery Studios Challenge: Giving Thanks!


Hey everyone...it's Wednesday and I will have a few cards for you today.

The first one is for our Pink Papery Studios DT Challenge. This week, Cassie issued the DT a challenge: Create a Thank you card in honor of Thanksgiving!

Now, this may seem simple as anything, but for me, a new DT gal with only two stamps, one of which contains a Christmas tree, this was a bit daunting! LOL! I chose to work with the Simply Cocoa set which I love and used pretty Fall colors to color her in with my Copics. Doesn't this just make you want to cozy up near a fireplace and have a nice chat?

I've been really busy lately and have a TON of people to thank for being super generous w/ my son these last few weeks. I've been making a ton of cards and they're all ready to be sent out...hopefully today! I'm out of stamps, as usual, of course, so a trip to the PO is necessary...

Anyway, one of my awesome friends, Jillian, has been checking in on me lots and making sure that I'm not losing my mind being at home, not to mention pretty worried about the whole situation w/ my little guy. So, Jillabella, this one's for you. The girlie image made me think of you :) The only things missing in this image is my laptop and cell phone since my morning coffee's have been spent chatting with her via email or texting...but thanks for doing your part in keeping the smiles coming and the jokes rolling! You are an amazing friend and I look forward to continuing this crazy journey that life has partnered us together on! Mwah!

I am so thankful for the wonderful people I have met through this stamping world, and the opportunities that continue to come my way. There have been so many open doors to walk through these last few months and I'm grateful for all of it. Most of all, I can't be grateful enough for the beautiful family I have been blessed with. As we do every year, we seem to have more and more to be thankful for...I can't wait for Thursday. I can smell the Turkey and my mom's pumpkin pie right now!

I'll be back later with a Prettie post...til then, Thankful hugs! ~Jessica :)
